I haven’t joined in a flash challenge, contest or anything lately so when I was Tagged – Lucky 7 style by Yikici, I hesitated at first. But I couldn’t resist. So here is the deal. I get to tag 7 more people. Here are the directions for those lucky people!
Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript
-Go to line 7
-Post on your blog the next 7 lines, or sentences, as they are – no cheating
Tag 7 other authors to do the same. Seven sentences…
Now…here are my lines from The Diary:
Wide as she was tall Rhoda waddled around the spotless kitchen, frying bacon and pouring milk, preparing breakfast. Raign ran her fingers through her dark tousled hair as she watched the housekeeper slowly stirring the heavy iron pot, a large wooden spoon in her hand. The smell of Rhoda’s wizardry at the stove comforted her.
“Shouldn’t we be out looking, Rhoda?”
Rhoda paused as she stirred the vat of bacon gravy and turned to look at the distraught girl, her eyes still moist.
“We will, Miss Raign. But we can’t do anything in the dark.”
Ted stepped into the kitchen, followed by Daniel, and went directly to Rhoda. Not much taller than her, he put his arm across his wife’s shoulders and whispered something in her ear. Rhoda nodded her head as Ted turned to Raign. When he saw her eyes, dark violet and haunted against her pale skin, he leaned over and kissed her forehead.
Wow! that was easier than I thought!
Tag! You are it!
